For the peeps out there who have a 6 & 6plus on them, do you notice a difference in screen hue?

My 6 plus screen is "whiter" than my 6 which is more yellow / cream looking? :confused:

Yep I notice it on my devices. Can't quite point out what the difference is but there is definitely a differece when you look at them side by side.

Yep, yellow screens have been an issue since the iPhone 4. They are really ugly. It's not glue drying either. The yellower the screen the more blurry they appear somtimes also.

iphone 6 is a little bluer but also has a zagg hd screen protector.
They are very close to one another.

No, I isn't a yellow screen issue for me. But they differentiate. I will take a screenshot later and post it.
Screenshots won't show a color in screen color differences lol. That's a software function trying to capture a hardware defect.

I think the 6 Plus either has a better diffusion panel or a stronger backlight. If you are looking at a white background on the iPhone 6, there is noticeable yellowing at the top of the phone because it is distant from the backlight. The 6 Plus does not have this gradient.

But to be fair, I've noticed this same issue on every previous iPhone as well.

The 6+ has it too. Went to an Apple Store yesterday and glanced at some of the display units. Not all of them but a lot of them. So many variations of screens this round.

The 6 I had before my 6+ had a really nice display (with the exception of the 3 hot pixels).

From the way it sounds, the 6+ seems to be more consistent when it comes to the screens. Most likely because there are fewer made and all coming from the same batch/factory (F2/FK).

iPhone6 vs 6 Plus screen color difference.

My Plus is from the FK factory and it has an amazing flawless BLUE (bright white) screen.

----------

From what I seen in this board, I notice the people complaining are people with iphone 6 regular.

How do you tell where your iPhone came from?

What is the yellow screens caused by?
Foxconn workers are treated badly. They don't get breaks so when they really have to go to the bathroom, they just have to pee right where they're at and sometimes a little of that gets on the screens as they are being assembled.

Who cares. And blue screens are awful. Give me a yellower screen, it will act as Flux :D

Not a screenshot. I meant a picture of both screens.
Won't really help either. Everybody looking at them online, will have a different colour temperature/hue on their device.
Colour management is not rocket science. No two screens will be identical without calibration. Even after calibration, they will drift at different rates.
Your eyes get used to a certain look, so when a screen you are used to gets calibrated, your brain tells you its wrong.

Correct. Panel variance has been there, and will continue to be there. No two iPhones will look alike in this regard. That's why it's best to NEVER put two iPhones next to each other, as it can do your head in.
